Centre for Robotics

We're creating intelligent robotic and autonomous systems that benefit and inspire all of society.

The QUT Centre for Robotics builds on a decade of investment at QUT in robotic research and translation which has been funded by QUT, Australian Research Council, Queensland Government, cooperative research centres and industry.

The centre:

  • is at the forefront of research and innovation in intelligent robotics
  • translates research into commercial and societal outcomes
  • leads education, training and development of talent to meet growing demands
  • provides leadership in technological policy development and societal debate.

Mission and priorities

Robotics is a transformative technology with potential applications across a range of industries including manufacturing, agriculture and construction.

World leading research

We undertake research into robotic perception, understanding, control and interaction.


We create prototype systems to demonstrate principles and evaluate in real-world scenarios.

Engage for impact

We engage with industry, government and society through translational robotics research, media and public forums.
